For days when there are not enough hours in the day. These burritos make a great last minute supper. You can also pack and freeze them all in one big dish or wrap them up seperately for individual portions for during the week. Great for a mexican style dinner!

Fabulous. I had some chicken already cooked and shredded, so I used that and reduced the cooking time a bit here. Next time I might try adding some Mexican oregano to the filling, but it was delicious as written.
